In the last year Wikipedia has changed its definition of DNA vaccines and haa been removing references to DNA vaccines already in use.
The original Wikipedia article in DNA vaccination began like this:
Now it begins:
DNA vaccination is a technique for protecting an animal against disease by injecting it with genetically engineered DNA so cells directly produce an antigen, resulting in a protective immunological response.
And the reference to Paoletti and Panicali once said they were instrumental in the development of the Hepatitis B and HPV as DNA vaccines, as quoted below. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Recombinant_DNA_Vaccine
Enzo Paoletti and Dennis Panicali at the New York State department of Health, devised a Strategy to produce recombinant DNA vaccines by using genetic engineering techniques. They were able to transform ordinary smallpox vaccine into vaccines that may be able to prevent other diseases.
What Paoletti and his colleague, Virologist Dennis Panicali, set out to do was to alter the DNA of cowpox virus by inserting a gene from another virus (namely herpes, hepatitis B or influenza). These efforts resulted, amongst others in the development of acommercial Hepatitis B vaccine which is now widely used. HPV vaccine is another notable recombinant DNA vaccine.
The same link now brings up only this:
In 1983, Enzo Paoletti and Dennis Panicali at the New York Department of Health devised a strategy to produce recombinant DNA vaccines by using genetic engineering techniques to transform ordinary smallpox vaccine into vaccines that may be able to prevent other diseases. They altered the DNA of cowpoxvirus by inserting a gene from other viruses (namely Herpes simplex virus, hepatitis B and influenza).
NOW THERE IS NO MENTION OF ANY DNA VACCINES.
The original Wikipedia background on Paoletti and Panicali was quoted in March of last year.
(The article then includes photos of recipients of these two DNA (GMO) vaccines.)
Now, under Paolettt’s name in Wikipedia, it says only:
Enzo Paoletti is an Italian scientist who devised a strategy to produce DNA vaccines. Working with his colleague Dennis Panicali at the New York State department of Health and using genetic engineering techniques, the researchers were able to transform ordinary smallpox vaccine into vaccines that may be able to prevent other diseases.
Paoletti and his colleague, Dennis Panicali, a virologist, altered the DNA ofvaccinia virus by inserting a gene from another virus (namely herpes, hepatitis Bor influenza). The efforts resulted in multiple veterinary vaccines and the development of the first DNA vaccine for humans, a single-dose Japanese encephalitis vaccine called IMOJEV released in 2010. As of June 2015, no other DNA vaccines are available for use in humans.
Wikipedia does not mention the DNA vaccines Paoletti was responsible for helping develop – the Hepatitis B vaccine or the HPV – and denies there are any DNA vaccines in use in the US.
NIH, posting an article by the Brazilian Journal of Medical and Biologic Research. says otherwise.
“The classical example of recombinant protein vaccines currently in use in humans is the vaccine against hepatitis B….
“A more recently developed example of recombinant vaccine is the vaccine against human papillomaviruses (HPVs ….”
Here is the pharmaceutical industry’s problem.
From Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DNA_vaccination
“No DNA vaccines have been approved for human use in the United States.
“Thus far, few experimental trials have evoked a response strong enough to protect against disease, and the usefulness of the technique, while tantalizing, remains to be conclusively proven in humans. As of June 2015 only one human DNA vaccine has been approved for human use, the single-dose Japanese encephalitis vaccinecalled IMOJEV, released in 2010.”
Contradicting Wikipedia, NIH’s posted article cites the HEP B aa a classic DNA vaccine currently in use and the HPV as another DNA vaccine being used in the US.
If we are to believe a medical journal over Wikipedia …
The pharmaceutical industry aided by the CDC has been selling vaccines never approved for human use in the US.
To sell those unapproved vaccines, the pharmaceutical industry and CDC have arranged for schools and day care centers to refuse access to children, for health care workers to lose jobs, for college student to be refused places on campus, for poor families, single mothers, and the homeless to be refused food services and support, and beyond imagining, for families to even lose their children – for refusing, whether for themselves or on behalf of their children, vaccines never approved for human use.
And the pharmaceutical industry has used media to shut down discussion of vaccine safety by characterizing those refusing these vaccines as a threat to others’ lives and any questioning of vaccines as anti-science. Bill Gates on CNN went so far as to say that simply questioning vaccine safety kills children, while he himself has been actually killing them with vaccines – 10,000 of them in Pakisan – and in response to parents’ refusal to continue to put their children at risk, Gates’ vaccines were mandated.
The CDC and media promotion of fear and targeting of people concerned about problems with the vaccines, made it almost impossible for them to warn close friends and even family members. Heavily funded by Bill Gates and the pharmaceutical industry, Hillary Clinton’s utterly contemptuous comment was typical of the shut down of all questions:
